South Bridge Road continues to thrive as the latest hotspot for exciting new cafes, restaurants, and patisseries. If you’re still spoilt for choice, you should definitely consider popping by Pomme for both brunch and dinner fare, and some of the most gorgeous entremets you can find in the Chinatown-Raffles Place area.
The minimalist white-hued cafe is run by a team of four talented young individuals, each with culinary and/or pastry experience — you’re in good hands.
The name ‘pomme’ draws inspiration from the Latin pomum to mean “fruit” — which represents the philosophy they seek to uphold: serving all customers with a spirit of excellence so that they will be remembered by “the fruit of [their] culinary work”.
Ever since its opening, Pomme has been drawing the crowds for its exquisite repertoire of European-style pastries: petit gateaux, macarons, and “travel cakes”.
Available in flavours like Spiced Chai, Blackcurrant, and White Chocolate Matcha, the macarons retail at S$2.50 per piece, but you can get a box of 6 for S$14 and a box of 12 for S$26 respectively.
The most popular petit gateaux are Pebble (S$9.50), comprising black sesame mousse, sable, and a molten black sesame namelaka core, and the namesake Pomme (S$11.50), a white chocolate shell encasing green apple mousse, apple compote, and calvados caramel.
Alternatively, proclaim your love for corn (“it’s CORN!”) with the Gentle Daisy (S$9), which features elements of sweet corn, thyme, passionfruit, and almond frangipane.
Personally, I’d go for the Cleopatra (S$12), a decadent and elegant combination of dark chocolate mousse, truffle camembert, and feuilletine that’ll have you swooning.
Pair these sweet treats with a coffee (from S$4.50), Black Sesame Milk (from S$7), or a refreshing Yuzu Honey Citron Ade (S$6) and live out those Korean cafe vibes to the fullest.
The food menu is divided into day and night, with an enticing selection of starters, mains, and pastas.
Highlights of the daytime menu (11.30am to 2.30pm) include Hand-cut Fries (S$12) with mentaiko or shio kombu, Spanish Shakshuka (S$20), and the Truffle Cream Pappardelle (S$22).
Come evening, the night menu (available from 5.30pm) features starters and small plates like the Nasu Dengaku (S$12), grilled miso-marinated eggplant, Pork Belly w Nori Jam (S$22), and the Ika Geso (S$14), or fried squid with togarashi and cider mayo.
Round everything up with Striploin (S$45) and a Seasonal Risotto (S$26), alongside a cheeky cocktail (from S$16) or glass of wine (from S$13). Let’s cheers to that!
